How to keep cold and flu germs out of your home

This time of year everyone is pulling their hair out trying to keep their family safe from all of the cold and flu germs that they come in contact with on a daily basis.
 
This year in particular the flu virus has been VERY persistent.
 
As a maid I come into contact with hundreds of germs on a daily basis myself and people are always asking me how I stay healthy. 
 
I have compiled a list of easy steps that you can take to keep your home and family germ free. There are some you may not have thought of so check them out and let me know what you think!

Bedbugs!! The basics you should know

Bedbugs.  The very name makes our flesh crawl and our arms itch.  Most people know that these critters are tough to get rid of at best.  Having an infestation can be both costly and time consuming. 
 
How can you protect yourself??
 
There are many websites that provide in depth information on treatments and prevention but here are the basics you need to know.
 
1.  Bedbugs are not the result of a dirty home! Do not be embarrased and afraid to mention that you have bedbugs.

Do eco friendly cleaners work??

Eco friendly or "green" cleaners have been making a huge push the last few years. 
 
As a maid I get asked the question all the time.  "Do eco friendly cleaners work as well as traditional cleaners?"
 
The simple answer is absolutely YES!
 
Many traditional cleaners out there use natural chemicals to start with and then either concentrate them or add to them harsher chemicals like ammonia and chlorine to give them added power. 
 
The truth is 9 times out of 10 for household use you do not need that added power.

Spring Cleaning!

Spring is here and warm weather entertaining is on its way!  Is your home fresh and ready for company?
 
Even if you do clean regularly your home can benefit greatly from a yearly "deep clean". 
 
When your heating unit is running double time during the cold months your filters start to lose their effectiveness and allow particulates and dust to accumulate faster than they normally would in your home. 
 
Dust and dirt can build up in places you may not think about!
